And if you or any of your party has dietary restrictions or preferences, we can create a menu that will be as memorable as your first dance.

(Chef Ryan Romain was born and raised in Marrero, LA , he is the oldest of 3 boys . From a very early age Ryan was motivated to always be able to get what he wanted and knew he would have to work for it. He decided to start working at his family’s newly opened Seafood Restaurant Hardheads at the age of 15 and his passion for the kitchen exploded. Working closely along side his uncles he got to see how a business, especially a restaurant was able to start-up   Like most in the industry Ryan started as a dishwasher and quickly transitioned to learning the techniques that would ultimately shape the rest of his working career.  

Chef Ryan decided later after High School at Holy Cross to enroll in culinary school at Delgado Community College in New Orleans, Louisiana to further refine and educate himself in the field.  While in culinary school he worked in multiple kitchens around the city and got to take in the different atmospheres. From small family owned business like Cafe Diblasi, a refined Italian eatery, to the non-stop big hotel chains like Marriotts, Chef just wanted to experience as much as he could .  

After several opportunities presented themselves to Chef Ryan he transitioned  from the seated restaurant world  to see if he could still offer something more to his hometown.  Chef Ryan served as the executive chef at Second Harvest Food bank over the past 4 years. In doing so it was a really humble experience knowing he was providing meals to the elderly and children not just in New Orleans but all over the state.  In August of 2017 he decided to take his talents to the Balcony Ballroom,  one of the city's premier wedding and reception destinations.)

Love is Weatherproof

Not to mention, when you and your guests arrive they’ll do so under our convenient, well-lit covered drive, ensuring no one has to endure wet hair or damp suits.

So no matter the season, your ceremony and reception
will unfurl in spacious splendor, just as you’ve imagined, with a temperature and feel impervious to everything but your
wedding’s fun. 

White Glove Service


For over 40 years The Balcony Ballroom has built its impeccable reputation on creating lavish events of every kind. How we did it was simple. One of the owners is always on site at every event to ensure your party goes off without a hitch – except for the bride and groom, that is. Not to mention, we employ over 25 of the most professional and courteous staff to help you with every aspect of your event. So from set-up to cleanup, we’ll have everything covered. From your own personal attendant and wedding coordinator to servers behind every station and servers butlering hors d' oeuvres, you won’t have to think about anything but your groom. We’ll even box up the cake, and pack and load your presents, too. (And unlike a groomsman, we’ll be sure not to
break anything.)
